Being a student can be incredibly expensive. One of the many perks, however, is your ability to get student discounts! Here are some of the best places to get student discounts in Sarasota.


Other than baseball, another great American past time is bowling. It’s also an inexpensive way to hangout with your friends, enjoy a few beers (if you’re of legal drinking age), and get your head out of the books for a little bit.

Evie’s offers a student discount for 25% off food and beverage while you bowl. Evie’s also has a happy hour everyday from 3-7PM for $3 domestic drafts, $4 well drinks and plenty of other specials.

Be prepared to paint the metaphorical town red!
